The mystery island help map is basically a jpeg file with the entire map of mystery island with some comments added. In theory this should help you beat the game. In practice the execution is very poor, let me lay out the problems:

The screens line up badly. Often screens have shifted with respect to each other, and the lines between the screens have been marked either red, blue, white, black or a combination thereof seemingly at random.

The map is also ridiculously large. A 1:1 ratio is just way to large, on my screen resolution it means that I can only see about 1 30th of the map at a time. And zooming out doesn't really help either since the text that has been added is meant to be read when fully zoomed in.

Also the help isn't terribly useful most of the time. I liked the fact that it includes a lay out of how to hit the cameras in the right order and I also like the fact that all the potions are marked. But other than that the comments are just plain useless as they don't tell you in what order you should do things. You'll still need the walkthrough if you're stuck. Which makes this file... Not really useful
